In linux this problem was solved surprisingly fast and with very good results.
Not everything is fixed. Some issues remain as they need to be fixed in the hardware.

the freebsd dev are not willing to solved the problem if no money is added to the effort ! the just hide behing that "no warranty"
This is a blatant lie and a commit has been made to FreeBSD for spectre.

When will FreeBSD stop being vulnerable to this?
If FreeBSD wasn't the last to be told about the vulnerability, it would have been fixed by now, and farther along than Linux has managed to accomplish. Linux people were told of this in secret long before the news leaked out about this. The "news" is when FreeBSD first heard.

Don't blame FreeBSD devs. Blame Intel.
